Update

Just some pics from earlier this week.

 

Podisus, aka Spined Soldier Bug, egg mass with a parasitic wasp!

Podisus hatching from egg mass to their 1st instar, or lifestage. They can be cannibalistic at this point.

The elderberry borer is an interesting insect. The larval stage tunnels through the base of the stem and the adult stage, pictured, feeds on the foliage.

More later…
